My inspiration comes from the visible world of people, animals, and my surroundings. The themes of much of my work deal with humorous contradictions and extremes. I find this makes art real for me.
Domestic animals are an inspiration to me because of the humorous physical and “super imposed” human side I see in them. The relationships between men and women and their pets are also a very large part of my portfolio. I focus on stories within details so that the viewer will find themselves wondering into my pieces. I consider myself an illustrator with a sculptural leaning. My goal is to create work that compels you to look, laugh, and become caught up in the same attention to details and subjects that inspire me.
